for a relaxing holiday .

our experience of Radiance of the seas is very disappointed and upset .

food was not good at all in either cascades main dining room or the buffet windjammer.

the choice of food was awful putting mostly the same variety of food on all the time on alternate days .

food was cold unappetising and not cooked like a professional chief would cook .

their was a terrible smell on the carpets on some of the decks like fusty mildew smell

my husband complained 5 times and it was still there when we disembarked .

the shows were very unprofessional and very loud ,

drink prices seemed to fluctuate during the cruise the same bar charging a dollar more one night than the previous night up and down the whole cruise .

we boarded ship in Fremantle and were told by other passengers that the ship prices of drinks went up once docked in Fremantle .

and for the rest of the cruise {some passengers boarded in Sydney before Fremantle }

the showers were so small one would not want to try and pick up a bar of soap if dropped .

and by the way NO Toiletries given or bath robes no water in cabins we had to buy it .

even had to buy fresh orange if you wanted it for breakfast in the buffet windjammer .

included if you went to the cascades restaurant .

which took about 45 mins to bring your breakfast once ordered

it took 4 attempts over two days for me to have the hairdryer replaced in my cabin as it was

broken .the sanitation of hands in restaurants were very poor .

crew talking instead of insisting hands were sanitised .

lots of passengers ill and taken off the ship at different ports .

i really must credit the cabin attendant who did do a good Job {Thank you .

we will never cruise on Royal Caribbean again .

very very disappointed for a cruise that we saved for about 10 months
